    Well, for starters, you take your uninstalled LED stage fixtures & make a holiday statement. These are ADJ Mega TriPar Profile fixtures backlighting white banjo cloth across three 2nd floor breakout rooms.

    Just do what the Stones did in their early days, according to Bill Wyman: “forget it, use it as a rehearsal...drink beers and smoke”.

    That’s the best plan. Some of the early bands I played with seemed to specialise in playing empty venues!

    You've got on of the most valuable guitar effects you can buy. Record with it. You can't beat the real thing.

    Many guitarists looked for a way to reproduce the natural reverb and echo they enjoyed during soundchecks in empty halls. Guitarist Duane Eddy outfitted a 500-gallon metal water tank with a speaker at one end and a microphone at the other to create an artificial echo chamber for recording. https://electronics.howstuffworks.com/gadgets/audio-music/guitar-pedal1.htm
